Mark Everett Johnson will amaze you at the Mequoda Summit East 2011 with his knowledge of copywriting

Trust me, I’m not saying you aren’t already a decent copywriter.

If you are creating email headlines that get opened; and email content that receives clicks, you’re off to a good start.

The majority of email copywriters can surely use some additional assistance with their craft, and that’s why we’ve brought copywriting expert Mark Everett Johnson back for our upcoming Mequoda Summit East 2011.

If you’ve sat in a session with Mark before, you must know about his “what if” procedure.

During this process, an email subject line is displayed for the audience to see. Then, Mark asks people to critique the subject line by only using “what if” questions. This presents a valid way to explore new possibilities without negatively criticizing someone’s hard work.
